Aleatory Entanglements: (Post)Humanism, Hospitality, and Attunement--A Response to Hugo Letiche
Snaza, Nathan
Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, v14 n3 p256-272 2017
This article is a response to Hugo Letiche's "Bewildering Pedagogy," an extended critique of many of Snaza's published texts. In it, Snaza selected four important points of disagreement and elaborated four tensions between Letiche's claims and his own present thinking--tensions that all turn on ontological and epistemological axioms about borders and the work of border policing. These are: the role that the political philosophy of Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri plays in Snaza's conceptualizations of politics; the precise meanings of "humanism" and "posthumanism"; the status and meaning of "animality," especially the animality of the human; and the role of hospitality in understanding educational encounters. Using Letiche's critique as a point of departure, Snaza elaborated a conception of education as bewildering, where various participants come together in unexpected and unpredictable ways to navigate their mutual exposure to "aleatory entanglement."
